Honor our Nation’s Heroes during Branson Veterans Week

Join Branson, Missouri in honoring our nation’s heroes during Branson Veterans Week, November 5-11, 2019. The event is America’s largest veterans celebration and welcomes men and women from all branches of military. The seven day tribute includes many special events and festivities to honor the brave men and women in uniform.

Branson Veterans Week: What to Expect

The entire seven day event features activities such as reunions, memorial ceremonies, entertainment, and free food.

Start your Branson Veterans Week off with the Opening Ceremony show performed by vets for vets. In 2019, the appropriately named “Vets for Vets Celebration Show” begins at 1:00 pm on November 5th at the Mansion Theater. The production is modeled after a USO-style celebration and boasts several military veteran entertainers and USO alumni. This year, Branson performer Yakov Smirnoff is the featured guest.

A special Branson Veterans Day Parade is also on the schedule. The parade marches through downtown Branson on November 11th and is a long-standing Branson tradition. The annual parade begins at at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. It is a memorable end to Branson’s Veterans Homecoming Week.
